Craft show season


And I'm Busy. Busy. Busy.

I had my second show of the Fall season last Saturday. It was outdoors. I usually stay away from outdoor shows after October, but the vendor price was right so I thought it was worth the chance. I opted out of a show three weekends ago due to weather and lost my booth fee. But this time it turned out to be a simply beautiful day- although I set up bundled up in my winter coat, hat, scarf and gloves. My mom was able to help out, and that was great. I have been doing shows for almost 5 years and this was my first time not doing it solo. I have shows the next two Saturdays, then I get a break and then I have two more. This Saturday's show has typically been my highest grossing, so I have great expectations. Now I just need to work on creating more inventory in the next, oh, 3 days!!!

Wow. That is a cool booth! You are very talented! Craft shows are always so much fun too. A lot of work ... but fun! (I'm more on the going end usually, instead of the selling end though.) I wish you were closer to me. That would be a FUN show to see! Good luck to you!

oh... I LOVE craft shows...especially the outdoor ones! Your booth is GREAT!! I wish I could've shopped in person, instead of online. But I just ordered a pretty nice selection from you last week. Did you get my order?? So excited! You do amazing work and I plan to do a post to promote your website when my order arrives. I've already steered a couple of people in your direction, as I think you create some of the nicest bows and hair accessories out there! Good luck with the rest of your shows. One step closer to fulfilling those adoption dreams of yours. I can't wait until that special day comes for you and I see that big announcement on your blog!!

Love and hugs,
